Bento Time!

If you don’t know what a bento is, it is basically a Japanese lunch box with sections of different foods to eat with rice or noodles. This bento is called the “Gyu-Meshi Bento”, translating to “Beef Stew Bento”. This is one of my favourites as the beef stew is my mom’s recipe and she makes […]
